The New HR-55

We are proud to introduce our latest design to our Pro Touring Series. The HR-55 is the next generation of Pro Touring and Performance wheels. We styled this wheel with performance in mind while adding as much detail as possible to give you a wheel that is strong, lightweight, and will look great on a range of vehicles. The HR-55 is available in 17-20″ with more sizes coming soon. We build this for most 5 lug applications and in a range of widths from 7″-15″. Custom sizes are available. Like all the HRBB Pro Touring series wheels the HR-55 is made to order and clears most aftermarket brake packages. Shown here in both polished finish and our Coddington Coating Ceramic Charcoal and polished lip. For more information on these give us a call.     1-DSC_0703-0011-DSC_0751

Real Junk Yard Dogs – Not overseas imitations

Back in 2003 my dad was working on a 1956 Chevy that was going to be aired on American Hot Rod. Like most builds created at the shop a custom one-off set of wheels was machined to put the finishing touches on the car. The result was a modernized version of a classic T70 5 spoke wheel. As soon as those wheels were put on the Junk Yard Dog we knew we had another winner of a design on our hands. It wasn’t long before we decided to make it in a high quality billet and cast centered version in 17-20″ to offer for sale to the public. At Hot Rods by Boyd we continue to manufacture the same exact wheel. While there are other chinese wheels out there that try to imitate and replicate this classic do not be fooled. HRBB is the source for the original version of this design. Just like every other wheel HRBB produces every JYD is made to order. We offer a range of widths, offsets and finishes to give you the perfect look and fit for your car.

Hot Rods by Boyd and the Vern Luce Coupe featured in the new Maximum Drive magazine

The latest issue of Maximum Drive magazine hits stores today. Last year we had the pleasure of having the Vern Luce Coupe stay with us for awhile. The Coupe wasn’t the first car my dad built but it was the first car that defined what is now known as the Boyd Look and changed the direction hot rodding and custom cars were going in the late 70′s and early 80′s. We had a great time taking the coupe out to shows and Jason Mulligan of Maximum Drive was there to document it. Jason put together a really nice article that talks about my dad, the coupe, and it’s important role in Hot Rodding and Boyd Coddington history. maxdrivecover maxdrivespread

2014 Good Guys Del Mar and Boyd Coddington Memorial Award

Another great Del Mar Good Guys show. Definitely one of the best venues for a California car event.  A stone’s throw to the beach, beautiful weather, and as always some of the best cars in So Cal come out for the event. Gregg and I were excited once again to hand out our father’s memorial award. This year the award went to a 1940 Pontiac woody owned by a member of the DuPont family. The award was accepted on behalf of Mr. DuPont by the shop that built this beautiful woody, Hot Rods and Custom Stuff out of Escondido, CA. This car caught our eye right off the bat. It’s rare to see these Pontiac woodies and to see one built to this level was amazing. The work done by Randy Clark and his team is just amazing. Interesting enough that the winner of the first Boyd Coddington Memorial award, Andy Meeh, does all the paint work at Hot Rods and Custom Stuff. Andy and his family drove the woody through winners circle to accept the award.  I was happy this year to share the experience with my two daughters, Jenna and Stella. Once again a great time and we look forward to next year. 1-DSC_0557 1-DSC_0567 1-DSC_0573 1-DSC_0575 1-DSC_0579
